Use the Currency Converter to calculate exchange rates for any day back to January, 1990. Add percentages to get more realistic rates like what you’re charged by banks or credit card companies.
We try to keep the list of countries and currencies up to date for all currencies where there is reliable data available from financial institutions. If you can't find the currency you're looking for, please send us feedback.
If one of the currencies you select is not in effect for the date you request (for example, it's obsolete or not yet introduced), you will see a message that the exchange rate data is not available.
The Currency Converter shows the bid rate in the right field when you enter a value in the left field. This is different from OANDA's old fxConverter, which shows the ask rate. To see the ask rate in the new converter, simply go to the lower details section and look for the relevant "Buying" entry.
You can find more details in our Help for fxConverter Classic page.
Aside from English, the currency converter is also available in the following languages: Arabic, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portugese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, Simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese.
You can also create your own wallet-sized exchange rate reference card using the Traveler's Cheatsheet tool on our Currency Converter.
There are several ways that you can receive automated updates on OANDA Exchange Rates:
If you seek historical exchange rates information for a single currency pair and date, you can use the Date option on the Currency Converter to get the result you are looking for. However, if you would like to compare multiple currency pairs or exchange rates over a period of time, you can use our Historical Exchange Rates tool. This tool allows you to compare exchange rate data for up to 5 currencies simultaneously, as either a graph or a table, for any period back to 1990.
You can visit the Olsen Data website to obtain further information on how to obtain exchange rates prior to 1990.
No, we do not give personal consulting on the exact date and time to exchange your money or provide recommendations on where to buy or sell currencies. To find out the best places to change your money, contact your local bank or travel agency.
